About the book

Lagom (pronounced lah-gom) is a Swedish word that means ‘not too much and not too little, but just the right amount’. It’s about achieving a happy and healthy balance in all aspects of your life, such as eating and drinking in moderation, being environmentally and socially conscious, setting realistic goals and living within your means.

The Little Book of Lagom is packed with practical ways to apply this ethos of moderation and fairness in your everyday life, from thrifty tips for being more energy efficient and creating less waste to ways of using your time more productively and allowing yourself moments to pause and think, and be happy.

Be kind to yourself and simplify your life. Think Lagom.




'Hygge was so 2016… Get ready to embrace a Goldilocks-style philosophy that is more conscience-driven than cosy. Lagom is all about minimalism, efficiency and balance.'
